Chapter One is a restaurant in Parnell Square in Dublin, Ireland. It is a fine dining restaurant that is awarded one Michelin star from 2007 to present.[1][2] The Michelin Guide awarded the restaurant the "Red M", indicating 'good food at a reasonable price', in the period 1996-2001.[3]

The restaurant is located in the basement of the Dublin Writers Museum. The name of the restaurant refers to that.[4][5]

The kitchen style is European.

In 2007 and 2008 the restaurant is completely renovated and modernised. New rules for hygiene and working conditions made that necessary. The builders completely stripped the kitchen and built it up again in just 17 days. In the same period the kitchen crew familiarized themselves with the new equipment. On day 18 the restauant was up and running again like nothing happened.[6]

Head chef of Chapter One is Ross Lewis.
